Research You Should Do Before Buying a Used Car in Concord

2018 Volvo XC60

Have you been looking for used cars in Concord? If so, there are some important considerations to make before you settle on a new vehicle. Check out this used car research guide for drivers in Hillsborough, Canterbury, and beyond from the team at Lovering Volvo Cars Concord.

Used Car Research and Considerations

  1. Decide the kind of car you want. - Consider your driving needs and the kind of car that would be best suited to your lifestyle. Are you a commuter? A fuel-efficient sedan is probably a good pick. A family? Consider a crossover SUV or minivan. Maybe you're a student? Take a look at a hatchback or wagon. 
  2. Determine your budget. - Now that you know the kind of car you want, take an honest look at your budget and determine how much you can afford to spend on a monthly car payment. 
  3. Research models. - Buying a used car can be a great way to save money, but it's important to do your research to make sure you're getting the most for your money in terms of reliability, performance, and the latest features.
  4. Find the right dealership. - Working with a dealership you can trust is important, so it's a good idea to look at customer referrals and standout features of particular dealerships.
  5. Take a test drive. - When you test-drive a used car, it's important to check the steering, brakes, exterior and interior cosmetics, and other important vehicle systems. It's also a good idea to take the vehicle to a trusted mechanic to make sure all the things you can't see and feel are in good shape. 
  6. Get a vehicle health report. - A vehicle history report includes important information about past owners and the vehicle maintenance and repair schedule, giving you a sense of how well the vehicle has been taken care of.
